A Brief on the Achievement of Innovation Unit

A desk-level office known as the Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer Office (IPPTO) within the ITMO office recently extended its services to members of the public with a view to providing assistance in all activities relating to patenting. The service features of the IPTTO desk office are illustrated in the accompany chart.

In the last eighteen months, the unit has obtained five (11) patents for the various inventions of faculty and students alike and another set of three (3) applications are being packaged for submission to the Patent Registry. Also within this period, two (2) number creative works from our students for cinematography are ready for copyright protection.
